Private WhatsApp Texts Show Khashoggi Described Crown Prince As A 'Beast'

  • Saudi Press Agency Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman right shakes hands with Salah Khashoggi a son of Jamal Khashoggi in Riyadh Saudi Arabia on Oct. 23 2018

The crown prince attended the Group of 20 summit and has been visiting friendly Arab nations over the past week on his first global tour since Saudi agents killed Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom's Istanbul consulate on October 2.

Before attending the G20 summit, he visited the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Tunisia.

Private messages obtained by CNN between Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi and Canadian activist Omar Abdulaziz reveal Khashoggi held a deep disdain for the Saudi crown prince and was fearful of increasing power over the Saudi kingdom.

Earlier in November, the Wall Street Journal said that excerpts of the assessment it had not previously reported state that the Central Intelligence Agency has "medium-to-high confidence" that Prince Mohammed "personally targeted" Khashoggi and "probably ordered his death" - but added: "To be clear, we lack direct reporting of the Crown Prince issuing a kill order".

After days of denial, Saudi Arabia later confirmed its role in Khashoggi's killing after facing massive pressure from Turkey over their investigations on the issue.

He was recommended to Bush through VetDog's relationship with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Mr Bush , who served as the 41st United States president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94.

Citing portions of the CIA's written assessment, the Wall Street Journal first reported on Saturday that Mohammed had sent at least 11 messages to Qahtani before and after the killing. It was jointly denounced by 17 intellectuals, journalists, Muslim scholars and other figures in Algeria in a statement obtained by AFP.

After becoming aware of the fact that the Saudis were most probably tracking their plans, Khashoggi writes to Abdulaziz: "God help us".

Saudi Ambassador to Algeria Abdulaziz Al-Omairini said the visit stresses the deep-rooted relations between the two countries and the joint action to develop them in all fields.

"Our relationship with Saudi Arabia is important to this country, but that does not prevent us from putting forward robust views on these matters of grave concern", she said.

There was no confirmation that the prince might also visit Algeria's neighbour Morocco, despite speculation in the local press.

New HIV Cases Diagnosed In NI Last Year
Meanwhile, the report also found that new HIV diagnoses continued to decline, falling 17% from 5,280 in 2016 to 4,363 in 2017. The momentum to revamp political commitment to end AIDS by 2030 has never been so strong in the European Region.

But in August, when he believed their conversations may have been intercepted by Saudi authorities, a sense of foreboding descended over Khashoggi.

Algiers also has strong ties with Qatar, with which Saudi Arabia and three other Arab states severed trade and transport ties in June 2017. Qatar denies the allegations.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "good personal relations are the basis for effective bilateral cooperation" when asked about the moment between the two world leaders.

In the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott early Sunday, he was welcomed by President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz.
